Re: What did you do Today

Hi Jimmy, That is a PITA :( As it happens I have 2 sets of 5TA bars, never fitted so new. Twice I ordered bars for my Nacelle equipped Speed Twin, and twice they were wrong lol :D . I ended up re-chroming the originals. If you want a set to try out let me know and I'll send one up to you. Cheers Geoff

There are also numerous groups on Facebook worth a try too, just do a search.

Re: Hello

Hi Budgie, I have a 1966 Speed Twin I restored from a virtual basket case. A lot of work but good fun and you have a smashing bike at the end of it.

Hi Joe, A nice little bike, It looks in fair condition. I would guess it is manufactured in the far east, maybe China, and is probably a clone of something like a Honda CB/CG125 (or similar). You might try to find a Facebook group on the model, or a more general bike forum. The term "Classic" bike i...
